Ontario Agricultural College 150th Anniversary

Let's celebrate.

Since opening our doors in May 1874, we've become internationally renowned for our research, teaching and knowledge extension in the broad areas of food, agriculture, communities and the environment. We are proud of our legacy and can't wait to kick off our celebrations in May 2024.

As we mark this milestone, we invite you to explore our rich history, connect with fellow OAC community members, and join us in charting a bold course for the future. Here's to 150 years of OAC!


We need your help to make it an unforgettable celebration! Here are some ways you can participate:
